I have been dyeing up a storm for craft fairs etc and even done a workshop in a local primary school on felting .I had forgotten how much I enjoyed teaching and the children created a wonderful wall hanging at the end of the morning and it now hangs in the schools main foyer. I was so pleased to have such great feedback from the head and staff.
We also had a Ravelry meet up at Harlech which was fantastic and we met up with some lovely people and I was asked to take some of my dyed yarns there too and did very well ;)
I so appreciate it when folks love my colours and there were one or two new combos I have come up with which flew out . The only downside to all this rushing about is that it wears me out but we did our last craft fair the other week until April and now I can do things for meeeeee:) We have been asked if we are having a stall in Wonderwool and the answer is a defo NO . I really can't afford to push myself to do more than I am able;it is so very tempting to try though especially as we have been doing so well. I have learnt the hard way that for me it won't work and also I would end up not having the time to do the things I want to do. I never wanted my hobbies to turn into a business but if I was younger and healthier then oh boy I would have thrown myself into it but at this stage in my life I shall be content to do the odd craft fair here and there .
I haven't taken any photos of work I have done and a lot has now sold too which is nice and I used handspun yarns for all my knitted stuff too.
So I shall now re-wind & show some pics of our hols and the fantastic Masham Sheep fair which will now be part of our annual holiday I think.
Lots of sheep :) and it was lovely to see so many different breeds there too
This one was definitely the cute one
and this one won the best fleece
This one was most certainly not the cutest
There were brass bands,Morris dancers but these were the dancers I loved and if I lived nearer I would join them ;)They certainly did seem to be enjoying themselves
I had forgotten what a pain Blogger is for loading pics :( So I will leave you with a shot of our stall at the last craft fair just to prove that I have been doing something during my absence .
So now will you stop bulling me to update my blog ? you know who you are ;)
I'm back and I will try and not leave it too long before I update again.
